One of the seven elements of an effective compliance program, as defined by the Office of Inspector General (“OIG”), is establishing effective lines of communication throughout your organization.
The OIG recommends an anonymous hotline or other similar mechanism so that staff, contractors, patients, visitors, and medical and clinical staff members can report potential compliance issues.
Athena offers an anonymous compliance reporting service that is provided by our knowledgeable compliance experts.
The following are attributes of our hotline:
- Custom posters to use throughout your facility
- Anonymous and confidential reporting
- Documentation of reports received
- Operational around the clock
- Timely notification
